You must unplug the range and remove the rear panel to access the wires.

I need some instructions how to change the lower oven element in my britannia SI-12T7 cooker. the element has screws that will not unscrew from inside the oven. any ideas?

straight forward to do. undo the screws to the back panel of the oven.
once remove down at the bottom of the oven you will see where the heater element comes through . there are to main feed wires that are pushed on and one earth wire. pulls these off as they are just push fit.
the element its self is a flat plate with 2 self tapper screws undo these and the element will then come out of the front of the oven. you have to lift it on a slight angle so the feet of the element will come through . hope this helps

Why doesn't new bottom element come on?

I don't know if this will help but I've had to replace heating elements a few times and once it didn't work after replacing the element. It turns out the short also caused one of my electrical wires connecting to the element to burn out as well. This may not be your same deal but make sure you check the wiring. You can also try using a voltage meter or tester to see if power is going to the replaced element. -hope this helps

The top element does not heat up but the bottom one does,

Hello Barry Kirstein - From what you have described it sounds like the unit has a faulty elements or could possibly be experiencing a wiring issue with the EOC. Try resetting the oven by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and if it proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose the unit.

Bottom coil won't heat up, but the top one does when on broil. There are no codes on the control panel. What could the problem be?

you'll have to check the element with a meter to see if it's bad,umplug the machine,remove the screws that hold the element in,slide it out,remove at least one of the wires and read it out with the meter,alot of times you can see a burn mark or a break in the element,if the element is good,look for a broken wire in the back of the unit or the clock could be bad,again you'll have to check with a meter to see if you're getting 240 volts down to the element,be careful you have to do this with the power time send the model number.the only way to tell is get in there with a meter.

Stove shut off and blew breaker. Once reset everything works but bottom heating coil. Had it checked, it works. No burnt wires in the back.

Check the oven switch. The bottom element is the main element while the top one is usually the grill element. If the breaker tripped there must have been an overload somewhere and you are possibly missing a connection or fused wire somewhere else.

We have an Amana Range/Oven ARG7102W, Manufacture #P1143347N W. The oven does not heat up to the temp set. We purchased an oven thermometer to check the temp. In order to reach 350 degrees, we have to...


A main wire burned off will cause both elements to not heat at the same time. It could be at the back going to one element then jump off and go to the second element. Or some times the manufacturer runs the wiring to the front on the controls, and a 3rd area that they could have a common tie point is right where the power comes into the oven. When this usually happens you'll have ok burners on top and no power completed to the bottom.
It could be a switch that's bad and not allowing power to carry on to your oven controls at the thermostat.
Let me know

Bottom oven element

Yes you will have to remove the back panel , but first shut off the breaker to the stove as one of these wires go directly to the power cord. Normally I would tell you to unplug it but in trying to move it out you may cause one of the wires to touch the frame and ZAPPP you! So please b4 you go farther shut the breaker off. Once you have the stove pulled out, it should have several screws that hold the back on. Not a big deal. Push the element through and connect the wires. In the future be very careful as you are pulling the element out and usually the wires will stay connected and you can replace the element from the front. Just remember to shut the power off first!

Need to replace heating element

We have a maytag stove and we cleaned our oven on the self clean cycle a week ago. I used the oven once since we cleaned it. today we went to use the oven again, and the oven will not heat and the broiler will not come on either....seems funny that both would quit working at the same time.....any suggestions....

Electric Heating Element Not Heating stove

It's not a fuse, but a wire or heating element has burned up. Please TURN OFF the circuit breaker until you repair the problem, or at least until you know what the problem is! You say "in" the stove, so I'm assuming that you mean in the oven. Whichever element it is, whether it's in the oven or on the stovetop, just needs to be removed and checked for continuity with an ohmmeter. Quite frankly, if it IS an element, then you should see a burned-out spot somewhere on it that's pretty obvious. Then you just need to replace the element. If it's a wire, then you will need to repair the wire so that it safely makes contact with the element again. That process is a little more involved than just replacing an element, but let us know what you find. I can describe a wire-repair procedure if need be. ;)
